Ivy can create a great screen and has its place in our gardens. However, in this case the ivy was slowly taking over the whole tree and would have eventually killed it by damaging bark, thus weakening branches and preventing light from reaching leaves. It also leaves the tree more susceptible to disease.
This is a splendid ash tree and we got there in time to sever the ivy at the base, let it die back and then remove it. We look forward to seeing this tree in full leaf later in the year.
